This has been a crazy week! I’ve spent the entire week nursing the sick hen. You know how it is when someone has no appetite, and you rack your brain trying to think of something they’ll eat? That’s what I’ve spent much of the week doing! I thought the old hen had turned the corner, on Tuesday, but, on Wednesday, she took another down turn, and stopped eating again. She’s still with us, but I’m sure it won’t be for much longer. I’ve offered her everything under the sun, to eat, but she’s just not interested.
Speaking of a crazy week, my daughter has been having one, too. During the wee hours of Monday morning, our granddaughter came down with the stomach virus. She threw up every hour for most of the day. Not a good way to start the week! To make matters even worse their dish washer and air conditioner tore up, this week, too! (and I thought I was having a crazy week!) The air conditioner was an easy fix, but the dish washer remains broken.
A bright spot in the week [of nursing the sick hen] came on Thursday, when grandson, Chase, came to spend the morning with me. He’s such a funny little guy, he makes me smile. He’s a bit stubborn and very opinionated, about what he likes and wants to do, but that’s Chase’s personality. He’s so fun to have a conversation with, these days! We played in the floor (for short periods at the time), but every time I’d get up to rest my back, he’d say “Play with me!”
Thankfully, all of the bad weather I’ve been hearing about on television, missed our neck of the woods. We didn’t even get much rain, but that is okay since we don’t need any more right now. It didn’t even rain enough to figure out if the roof still leaks, but, hopefully, it rained enough to wash the fertilizer into the garden.
Ed’s off again today, after being required to take another vacation day. We have no plans, at this time, other than I have to be at the Board of Education Office at 8:30 to file retirement papers. Sounds like fun, doesn’t it? I think I’d rather be at the beach…
That’s it for this edition of Friday Fragments. I’m linking up with Mrs. 4-4-4-4, as usual. Her Fraggin’ Fantastic Tercentennial Celebration is still going on. You should go check it out!
Have a great weekend, everyone!
